HDR and FBT Team Selected for University of New Mexico Hospitals Development Plan

(April 4, 2016) The University of New Mexico Hospitals selected HDR, teamed with FBT Architects, for a new adult acute care replacement hospital development plan located on the University of New Mexico campus in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The overarching goal of the development plan is to allow the University of New Mexico Hospitals (UNMH) to achieve its aspirational vision and transformative goal to provide advanced healthcare, teaching, research, and community outreach to the citizens of New Mexico through a new adult acute care replacement hospital. The existing hospital will be transitioned to women's and children's services.

"In concert with FBT, we're excited to work with the hospital's key stakeholders to reimagine patient care in New Mexico," says Jerry Jeter, HDR project principal.

HDR's integrated multidisciplinary planning team is employing evidence-based design, lean process improvement, sustainable "green" design solutions, and innovative technology to program and plan flexible, adaptable, and expandable clinical environments to meet UNMH's current and future healthcare demands. HDR is leading the process by actively listening to UNMH's vision, objectives, and planning principles to deliver a distinctive solution based on UNMH's unique clinical needs.
